5 places to watch the Super Bowl in Chicago

If you have charcoal, beer and enough chips to feed a small country already taking up space in your kitchen- then you probably don’t need this post.  But…  If you’ll be in Chicago, this Sunday, February 5 and you’re looking to eat, drink and cheer along with your new best friends, here are 5 suggestions for where to do, just that.

1.  Some of very favorite Twitter friends have invited me to Burger Bar Chicago this Sunday and my mouth is already watering…  For $30 you get unlimited access to the extensive and gourmet menu, while you cheer on the Saints… or the Pats.  In any case, you’ll get great TwitPic opps at @BurgerBarChi with some of Chicago’s most influential tweeps like:  @JodyRobbins, @FeliciaCago, @MafiaHairdreser, @LindaBergonia, @Refrigeration and of course, yours truly @JenChicago.

2. What is life without pizza?  La Madia ensures that we don’t have to ask ourselves this question.  The gourmet pies will be sold for $20 and include 2 beers, paired for you- if you’d like.  Wanna pick up and be the hero of the condo party?  Call for take-out.

3. Smoke Daddy  Being from Texas, I’ll take any excuse to chomp on some bar-b-que.  For about $10 per person, you enjoy their Super Bowl special of two pulled meats, two sides and choice of bread.  Wash it all down with $15 Miller Lites.  Stick around after the game for live music starting at 9pm.

4. Do you like to multi-task?  If you’re like me, the idea of staying in motin during the game is quite appealing.  10pin Bowling Lounge has a $25 Super Bowl special that includes bowling from 5 p.m. until the end of the game, and a halftime “bowler’s” buffet.  Register to win a Jamacian vacation in their raffle.

5. Margaritas goes with anything- and especially they especially go with football.  I think.  In any case, Angels & Mariachis includes margarita cocktails in their $40 package which also includes a delicious all-you-can-eat taco bar.  Arriba!

What did I miss?  Where will you be watching the game and who are you cheering for?

 

Kahlil Bell: #32 of the Chicago Bears

There’s never a dull moment at Stanley Wozniak‘s, The Joynt on Dearborn and Erie.  On Thursday, April 28 the first annual The Chicago Hoops United Classic kicked off with a pre-party at The Joynt and Chicago Bears runningback, Kahlil Bell, was there to support the cause.  I sat down with him to ask about the draft, the SuperBowl and of course, Twitter.
